Winemaker's Notes:

"This lower pedigree wine represents undeniable quality/value rapport in 2005. This vintage is so deep in quality among the better run, less heralded estates, that these wines should appeal to readers looking for terrific values from Bordeaux. Most of these wines are Merlot-based and will be drinkable young."
-Wine Advocate

"Nice berry, vanilla and chocolate character on a medium-bodied package..."
-Wine Spectator

My Notes:

About Chateau Mont-Perat:

Château Mont-Pérat was mentioned in the 1864 edition of the famous Feret Wine Guide and is one of the jewels in the crown of the Premières Côtes de Bordeaux appellation area. This vast wine estate was bought by the Despagne family in 1998, and after five years' work it is producing wine of rare intensity.
